Chattanooga, Tennessee, moves to allow food trucks on city streets
Food trucks will be allowed to serve on public property in Chattanooga, Tennessee, under an ordinance approved by the city council, according to nooga.com. A final vote is scheduled on Aug. 14. The ordinance, which requires food truck owners to have permits for the public areas they serve, was driven by a petition launched by food truck owners last year.
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Student Government Association also asked the city council to consider the change, which has been reviewed by various city departments, brick-and-mortar restaurant owners, food truck owners and others.
